A frontline politician and Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area in Imo state, Chief Tony-Black Nduka has taken a swipe on his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his kinsman and immediate past governor of the state, Chief Ikedi Ohakim for wasting four years without no meaningful development. Nduka, who is also a former Transition Committee Chairman of Isiala Mbano, Ohakim’s local government origin and Chairman, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) in the state, however, urged PDP to apologize to Imo people for wasting the entire four years without any legacy.
The PDP chieftain, who barred his mind after Gov. Okorocha’s meeting with stakeholders and leaders of Isiala Mbano LGA at the newly constructed Sam Mbakwe Expanded Exco Chambers, Government House, posited
“I am here to identify with success and to listen with other stakeholders the account of one year stewardship of Gov. Owelle Rochas Okorocha, and with what we have seen in the state and Government House, I can make bold to say that he has done very well.”
“I am short of words and for being part of the past administration, I can tell you that I feel ashamed of PDP. I am saying this because people know that I was part of that government and with what I’ve seen today under Gov. Okorocha just within one year, I can tell you truly that I am ashamed because I am a man that doesn’t hide my feelings. I worked with the past government for four years and nothing was achieved, now look at this edifice called Sam Mbakwe Expanded Exco which by all ramifications is world class and technologically equipped hall. You cannot imagine that this is where we left one year ago and the place is totally transformed to the extent that most of us couldn’t recognize it.”
He described Gov. Okorocha as an agent of transformation with midas whose ability to develop and place Imo in the map of progressive states in the country has been proven beyond doubt, adding that with the vision of the governor, Imo will regain its place of pride in Nigeria. The PDP chieftain explained that when he was invited for the meeting, some people attempted to discourage him from attending on partisanship ground, but he resolved to identify with the governor that has truly come to rescue the state.
“When they invited me for this meeting, some people called and asked me not to attend. Yes, I am a PDP stakeholder, but I realized quickly that I entered into a party to win election and solve the problems of our people, but unfortunately we secured the victory and could not solve any problem of our people and somebody under one year has been making this kind of progress and someone is expecting me not to support him. No! I must support Gov. Okorocha because he is truly on a rescue mission and above all, he is sincere to Imo people” Nduka concluded.
